Movie's finally filming this fall. No, seriously. They're actually doing it after talking about it for two years.

One thing to enrich your experience is to bone up on the actual history of the town.

The show is definitely stylized and a lot of the detail is created for narrative purposes. But still, an amazing amount of the detail hews remarkably close to history. A lot of what you watch, you say 'wow, can you imagine if that really happened.' And then you see that, in broad strokes, a lot of it actually did.

And it really delivers some strong and salient messages about what it means to live in a society. We quibble to this day about things like rules, regulations, taxes, decency, community, diversity, etc. And these people were bringing it to life on the fly with absolutely [or nearly] no rules to constrain them. You really get a sense of what compacts must be present to exist and thrive, and what are superfluous or luxurious.
For sure. I do plan on finishing the series as i was enjoying it.

One of my favorite parts of the show was the (albeit brief) friendship that formed between Bullock and Hickok. Unfortunately, that part was pure Hollywood. IIRC Hickok was killed the day Bullock and Starr arrived - it is unlikely that they ever even saw each other, let alone spoke.

Hated how it suddenly died on the vine like that, it was just getting warmed up

To me, it was right up there with HBOs best like GoT or Sopranos

Are they picking up right where they left off? The actors are a lot older.

I have been watching The Outpost, (jessica Green) a World of Thrones rip off that has such a low budget that I found one of the props in a picture of my kitchen 10+ years ago.





Deadwood was a great production, can't wait for movie and maybe the series return.

This convinces me that it is time to pull out the box set and revisit this series again.

Here’s the most up-to-date information about the long-awaited Deadwood film, based on the Golden Globe and Emmy-winning series .

What’s it about?
The movie comes nearly 13 years after the drama concluded in 2006 and follows the 10-year reunion of the camp to celebrate South Dakota's statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.

When will it premiere?
The film is set to premiere in 2019 on HBO, HBO NOW, HBO GO and HBO On Demand.

Who’s in it?
Returning to Deadwood are Ian McShane (Ray Donovan, American Gods) as the foul-mouthed saloon owner Al Swearengen; Timothy Olyphant (Justified, Santa Clara Diet) as Deadwood sheriff Seth Bullock; Molly Parker (House of Cards) as the widowed Alma Ellsworth; Paula Malcomson at Trixie; John Hawkes as Sol Starr; Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) as Mrs. Bullock; Dayton Callie as Charlie Utter; Brad Dourif as Doc Cochran; and Robin Weigert (Big Little Lies) as Calamity Jane Canary; William Sanderson as E.B. Farnum; Kim Dickens as Joanie Stubbs; and Gerald McRaney as George Hearst.

The film will also feature new cast member Jade Pettyjohn as Caroline.

I could do without a Calamity Jane reprisal. She was annoying as hell.

Nice.

"The next cocksucker that doesn't step out on to the balcony to cut the cheese is going to get thrown OFF the balcony!" Still one of the best lines from this show. Maybe any show, lol.
